In response to our complaint to an article by James Delingpole in the Daily Mail on 10 January 2013 the Daily Mail has now published a response from the Met Office Chairman on its letters page.
Met Office mettle
James Delingpole’s views misrepresent the Met Office’s reputation for world-class weather and climate forecasting and research (Mail). The UK can be rightly proud that the Met Office is among the world’s top two national weather forecasting services.
We’re proud that, in independent surveys, more than 90 per cent of the public regard our warnings as useful and more than 80 per cent of the UK public trust our forecasts and warnings. This respect for our professionalism and impartiality has been built over 150 years of forecasting for the nation.
We aim to use our world leading scientific expertise to protect life and property and increase prosperity and wellbeing right across the UK. We provide impartial services ranging from forecasts and warnings to the public, services to transport operators, so we can fly, drive or sail safely, and advice to the energy, retail and health sectors so we can all go about our daily lives safely and efficiently.

FOR BRIT-IR The colder than expected in UK current period 8-10th, with warm sectors closing and shifting south sooner than in Long Range, means cold weather without much of a break is likely to continue through imminent weather periods, so the major snow-blizzard period next week will be even more snowy, blizzardy and dangerous in Britain and Ireland.
FOR N/W Europe a similar enhancement of snow & Blizzard danger in next weeks snow-blizzard period.
FOR USA The implications are also that the simultaneous (with Europe) snowy-blizzardy period next week will be enhanced and NE USA will be hit again next week by another blizzard as bad or even more dangerous than the enormous thunder-snow-blizzard hitting NE USA on Feb 8-9th

Many of you have emailed me about the recent Piers Corbyn R5+ Solar/Lunar forecast saying the results were so similar between Hurricane "Sandy" and Blizzard "Nemo" that we should put out a statement of some sort.
In principal I agree with that request, but the reality is people will not comprehend what it is we are informing them about.
In our Statement: Solar Climate Change and Hurricane "Sandy" dated 1st November we put forward that a top level Solar/Lunar period, an R5+, was extended due to longer then expected burst of solar activity, and as a result there was a M7.7 Earthquake in Canada and Hurricane "Sandy" that formed in the Atlantic, she then went to the North East of the USA and hit the East coast, the rest as they say is history.
This week we had another extended R5+ period that was also due to longer then expected solar activity, that ALSO had a very high rated Earthquake (M8) and another formation of "super storm" in the Atlantic that has now run along the North East of USA. And yet the worlds media, and sadly this also includes Anthony Watts at WUWT who runs a skeptical scientific website for people who only share his version of skeptical views, will pay not attention to what we have had to say about the events of this week.
It is regret to those who have noticed this similarity in events between the last four months that what you have seen during live experiments is not worthy for the public domain yet. I guess the world is not ready for the revelation that our Sun and our Moon control the Earth's climate, and oh how at time like this I wish we had funding like other skeptical web sites.
Its thanks to the worlds media and sadly as already mentioned, that includes Anthony Watts, these two similar stories of two Major Atlantic storms and two Major Earthquakes will not be promoted.
The discovery made by Piers Corbyn about how our climate works in conjunction with the Sun and Moon will remain a secret to only those with open minds

07 February 2013 - The Met Office welcomes the Royal Academy of Engineering report on Space Weather, the UK's first in-depth study of the impacts of space weather.
The report concludes that whilst the space weather risk can be engineered out of many systems, there is a still a need for real-time alerting and forecasting of space weather to help minimise the risks it poses.
The UK Government has already made an investment in the development of a space weather prediction capability within the Met Office's existing scientific and forecasting capabilities.
Mark Gibbs, Met Office Space Weather Business Manager, said: "Space weather is a relatively immature science but understanding is growing rapidly and here at the Met Office we are working with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Centre in the US. This collaboration aims to enable both organisations to accelerate the development of improved space weather models and prediction systems to make more effective use of space weather data."
Through this work the Met Office is currently developing a real-time space weather warning service on behalf of the UK.

8 January 2013 - There has been media coverage today about our experimental decadal global temperature prediction, which is routinely updated in December each year.
The latest decadal prediction suggests that global temperatures over the next five years are likely to be a little lower than predicted from the previous prediction issued in December 2011.
However, both versions are consistent in predicting that we will continue to see near-record levels of global temperatures in the next few years.
This means temperatures will remain well above the long-term average and we will continue to see temperatures like those which resulted in 2000-2009 being the warmest decade in the instrumental record dating back to 1850.
Decadal predictions are specifically designed to predict fluctuations in the climate system through knowledge of the current climate state and multi-year variability of the oceans.
Small year to year fluctuations such as those that we are seeing in the shorter term five year predictions are expected due natural variability in the climate system, and have no sustained impact on the long term warming.

I have had several of you email in about what was said on the build up to Hurricane "Sandy". Most of you were concerned that the News Media do not report Solar Activity and the Earth's Weather events as being related.
Put simply the Media and various Government agencies will not support Solar Activity and the Earth's Weather events as being related, as it conflicts with the political view of "man made" climate change. If they started to say that the Earth's weather is changed by the activity on the Sun they would then not be able to support the politics of climate change.
The Solar period for Hurricane "Sandy" was during a very high "Red Warning" event, one of the highest of the year (R5+), it was no real surprise to see what took place as you you see below.
Firstly this is what we reported on a day to day basis starting on the 23rd October.
Solar Climate Change: Another "top rated" R5+ Period of Solar Activity looks to be underway
we are now at the start of a second R5+ period in two months. The following YouTube of a Solar flare from today looks to be the start of this event....remember the CME from a Solar Flare does not have to be in direct line with Earth, it's the "hole" that is facing us that counts...more to follow...see link for YouTube

Statement by Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano on 2012 Presidential race's climate silence:
"It is very surprising to see three presidential debates and one Vice Presidential debate pass without a single mention of climate change. This is the first time this has happened since global warming hit the national stage in 1988. Global warming activists are justifiably outraged by this. After all, Obama declared in April of this year to Rolling Stone that he would make global warming a key campaign issue in 2012. Obama let down a key part of his political base by going silent on climate.
What happened? How did climate change get reduced to a comedic punch line in the 2012 presidential campaign?

Met Office in the Media: 14 October 2012
- Met Office
An article by David Rose appears today in the Mail on Sunday under the title: ‘Global warming stopped 16 years ago, reveals Met Office report quietly released… and here is the chart to prove it’
It is the second article Mr Rose has written which contains some misleading information, after he wrote an article earlier this year on the same theme – you see our response to that one here.
To address some of the points in the article published today:
Firstly, the Met Office has not issued a report on this issue. We can only assume the article is referring to the completion of work to update the HadCRUT4 global temperature dataset compiled by ourselves and the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit.
We announced that this work was going on in March and it was finished this week. You can see the HadCRUT4 website here.

The UK has seen some very wet and windy weather since the early hours of Sunday morning and that is set to continue in places for the next couple of days – but what has brought these disruptive conditions?
As is the norm, a low pressure which moved in from the Atlantic is to blame, bringing bands of heavy rain and strong winds (as you can see from the tightly packed isobars on the image below).
